There are 2,053 individual letters in this portrait of Paul Weller. A vintage typewriter font is used to create the basic structure, then each single letter is coloured by hand, often three or four times as adjustments are made. This means it takes around 10,000 letter renderings by hand to get to the final image."The piece was created in Brighton, the spiritual home of the Mod [Quadrophenia], and Weller is often referred to as 'The Modfather'"

"The piece was created in Brighton, the spiritual home of the Mod [Quadrophenia], and Weller is often referred to as 'The Modfather'. As a reference to this, I've included a hint of a target, the Mod signifier, but have made it visually subtle as I think that, while Weller will always be associated with Mod culture, as an artist he has much more of a broader scope" - Mike Edwards
